Kiln Examinations: Energy/Material Balances and Efficiency


Objective:

Introduction to the performance and evaluation of cement kilns and mill trials.

Target Group:
Process engineers with experience in cement manufacturing
Description:
Kiln examinations are carried out in order to gather data on the kiln performance and to validate warranty performance data such as the clinker output, fuel-energy consumption, kiln feed/clinker ratio and cooler efficiency. They also provide a reliable foundation for the optimisation of individual operational system components, the cement quality and the reduction of emissions levels. Balances of volatile and non-volatile compounds are carried out to achieve an assessment of material cycles and coating formations. The workshop will introduce the participants to the methods and techniques of kiln examinations. After planning and organising a performance test, measurement and sampling techniques will be shown in the field. Based on real data, energy and material balances will be discussed and material cycles evaluated. The workshop includes a visit to the Cementos Lemona plant near Bilbao in Spain.
